Did gourmet marshmallows just become the most unique office gift ever?

Did gourmet marshmallows just become the most unique office gift ever?

 Gourmet marshmallows are not your average puffy confectionary. Nor are they your average corporate gift. For too long, your long-suffering colleagues have had to endure sub-par business gifts in the form of books they'll never read, bottles of cheap wine, and the biggest gifting cop-out of them all - a gift card.

This Christmas, why not show your colleagues that you care by giving them something that they'll actually enjoy? Gourmet marshmallows are the perfect way to show your fellow workers your unique style and taste (not to mention your advanced office gift-giving acumen), without breaking the bank.

But hold on, what are gourmet marshmallows? - We hear you ask!

At Cloud Theory, we specilise in delivering truly unique corporate christmas gifts Australia

Gourmet marshmallows are a step above your average plastic-wrapped, mass-produced treat. These delicious delights are handmade in small batches using only the finest ingredients, resulting in a marshmallow that is light, fluffy, and best of all, packed full of flavor.

So, what makes gourmet marshmallows the perfect corporate Christmas gift?

Put simply, they are delightfully different.

Why are we getting corporate gift-giving so wrong?

The problem with corporate Christmas gifts is that they are often chosen for their perceived usefulness, rather than for what the recipient will actually enjoy. We give our colleagues and clients books on business when what they really want is a break from work. We give them a gift card to choose something for themselves when what they really need is something that's been chosen just for them.

In short, we give them gifts that we think they should want, rather than gifts that we know they will love. This Christmas, take the opportunity to break away from the mold and give your colleagues a gourmet marshmallow gift that they'll love.

The forgotten art of office gift-giving

Christmas time is when many companies and businesses start to think about corporate gift giving. It's a time to show your clients and employees how much you appreciate their business or work over the past year. However, according to recent research, they are probably missing the mark. Snappy, a US-based corporate gifting platform, polled over 1,000 workers to learn more about their perspectives about receiving company holiday presents.

According to the study, many businesses lack a clear understanding of what gifts their employees would enjoy: 84 percent of respondents said they had received a present that they didn't want, and just under 90% acknowledged feigning enthusiasm for a horrible gift.

It's obvious that what's needed are some well-thought-out corporate Christmas gift ideas and advice that won't land you on the "worst gift giver" list!

But first, here are some terrible corporate gifts (so you know what to avoid!)

Are branded Christmas gifts like pens and stationery the worst corporate gift ideas ever? We think so!


The survey revealed the worst office gifts employees have received:

  • A book on how to improve your professional skills

  • A tourniquet (as in a device that tightly binds a limb to stop the flow of blood)

  • A seat belt cutter

  • Milk

  • Out-of-date cookies

  • Deli meat

Whilst this list is pretty amusing, it works to show that the gentle art of office gift giving is definitely in need of a little bit of work.

While a lackluster office gift can create a lasting negative impression, a well-chosen gift says much about how much you value your colleagues, clients, and business relationships.

Companies should take the time to get to know their employees better so they can choose gifts that will truly be appreciated. By taking the extra effort to select thoughtful, unique, and personal gifts, businesses can show their employees that they are valued and appreciated. In contrast,

Why we need to rethink corporate gift giving

Multiple studies show that when employees feel appreciated at work, they are more likely to be engaged and productive. So, if businesses want to improve employee morale (and in turn, productivity), they need to start giving better gifts.

Giving gourmet marshmallows as a corporate Christmas gift is a great way to show your employees that you care about them and appreciate their work. Not only are they delicious, but they are also a unique and thoughtful gift that will be sure to put a smile on your colleagues' faces.
